Yesterday, Saturday, October 4, 2014, was World Card Making Day. I celebrated, appropriately enough, by making cards.
This is a fairly recent holiday – yesterday was the 9th annual marking of this occasion. It was created in 2006 by Paper Crafts Magazine as National Card Making Day, but due to its popularity that year became known as World Card Making Day in subsequent years. It was intentionally held in early October as now is the time to kick off holiday card making. I was making cards that I hope to sell at two craft fairs I will be attending this holiday season. One will be in time to hit both the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays; the other will be focused solely on Christmas.
Here is one of the cards I made yesterday. I’m thinking the last panel can be used for the giver to list out what they are thankful for about the recipient, or it can be used at Thanksgiving gatherings for everyone to add their own item of gratitude and kept then as a keepsake for that year’s holiday.
